A post office existed from 1890 to 1954 but due to its rural setting with little settlement concentration, it did not meet qualifications as a Census Designated Place, a program used by the U.S. Census Bureau for unincorporated communities. Alpha appears on the Mayfield Lake U.S. Geological Survey Map.
The area has been named Alpha Prairie, Shoestring, and Tilton, with the current iteration chosen by either a local postmaster after the Greek letter or by settler Harold Hanson.
